Contact me at to find out how you too can join my team. Halloween is absolutely one of my favorite holidays. I've always loved it and I think I love so much more since having my son. I love watching him get excited about pumpkins and how he looks forward to our traditions that we've created with him these last 3 Halloweens. It is a quick and simple card that can be transformed into a adorable birthday card for a boy or girl and or even for Christmas especially if you are looking for that quick and simple card. Wouldn't this card be just adorable using the Jolly Bingo Bits?! I think I will need to do a Christmas version next. Thanks for stopping by!

holiday mini catalog is LIVE

Yay, it's here and IT'S FINALLY TIME to start shopping for fabulous new products in the Stampin' Up! Holiday Mini Catalog. Get a jump start on all your favorite holidays coming up, whether it be Halloween or Christmas and anything else in between. Click on the links below to open the mini catalog or to start shopping today.

If you do not have a holiday mini catalog and would like one email me at and I will mail you one right away. If you currently have a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, please contact them directly for you copy.

Here are a few of my faves and must haves:

Simply Scored Scoring Tool pg. 7

Spice Cake Product Suite pg. 17
OK so I say product suite because I love, love, love it all. From the gorgeous Spice Cake DSP to the fabulous Spice Cake Designer Buttons that coordinate and if that weren't enough already Stampin Up WOW'd me with the beautiful Spice Cake Fabric. I Love it and it's my favorite.

Snow Burst Embossing Folder pg. 33

Silver Glimmer Paper pg. 41
I have to say I love glimmer paper, I love the bling but I must say that the product photograph does not do this glimmer paper a bit of justice. I thought to myself when I first saw it in the mini that it looks kind of grey but let me be the first to tell you the first time I saw it I was kicking myself it's gorgeous it's like dazzling diamonds x12 or as my down line Jenn says "it looks like a disco ball, its so pretty".

I could really go on and on but I will stop here. Drop me a line and let me know what some of your favorite are I would love to hear from you. I have to run now, I have to go play with all my new goodies. Thanks for stopping by!

THANKS so much

A little bit of old and a sneak peek of NEW! I needed some thank you cards to accompany some orders that I had. I wanted quick cute and simple. I got the idea from a really cute bag I saw online somewhere, that used our fancy favor die and just took that idea and made it into a card. Of course I added some of my own touches here and there. The stamp set I used was the a la carte "Thanks so Much" this stamp is retiring as of July 1st. Sneak Peek alert: Just Add Cake DSP available July 1st. I love this DSP it's so fun and I love the color combination. Well I've got to run I have a long to do list today so I should probably get crackin'. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Thank you, Tracie!

One of my friends hosted a party this past Friday! I had a a lot of fun and meet some new people. That's part of why I love being a SU! Demonstrator, it's gives me some girl time and I get to share what I love to do. This was the hostess gift that I made for Tracie. I knew that she likes bright colors. So I thought I would alter this notebook around that idea. I used the Simply Scrappin' Kit from the summer mini called Playful Polka Dots. Don't you just love this bright cheerful color combination? I do. Thank you again Tracie for opening up your home to me and having a fun girls night of stamping and chatting!

wish BIG

Happy Wednesday! Boy did our weather go from one extreme to the other here in California. It's been cold and windy with rain here and there that I thought we would never see summer. We missed spring all together and jumped right in to 90+ degree weather. What happened to our transition weather mother nature? I'm not going to complain though my son is loving it and loving that he gets to play outside in the water! So I know that I've been MIA for a couple weeks now I've just been so busy with workshops, my sisters graduation and everyday life. This card was from my birthday stamp a stack that I had just a few weeks ago. I actually cased my own cards just using different DSP and colors. If you would like to see my original you can view that here. The girls loved it, I love the bright colors in this Celebrations DSP {if you want this DSP you better get it while it's still available it's on our retired list}. Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more cards from my stamp a stack class! Have a great day and be sure to go out and enjoy this weather!

thinking of you

Boy has this weather been so weird lately, it's definitely keeping us on our toes here in California from Hot to cold to windy I just wish Mother Nature would make up it's mind and let us get on with some nice weather.

This is another card that I made for our summer mini preview that I had with my demo sistas. I really love this stamp set "On the Grow" it's great for water coloring and so simple. I'm really liking this color combination, I'm not always good with stepping out of my usual go to colors so I've been really trying to challenge myself. So i have really been relying on my trustee color coach to help me with that. Great go to tool! Thanks for stopping by but I must run it's time for family time with my 2 boys! Have a great holiday weekend and be sure to stay safe!

Springtime BUTTERFLY

Happy Saturday! I hope all of you have great plans for the weekend and are going to enjoy this great weather while we have it that is if you are in California. I have my Stamp A Stack Class today and I'm looking forward to seeing all my ladies! We have so much fun together. So I will have to be brief with my post.

I love, love, love this card so much that I had to go out and CASE it. The first time I saw this card was out our mini preview that a handful of us Demonstrators got together for. My up up line Karen Flores made this card to be honest I'm not sure if she came up with this or if she saw it somewhere my guess is it's hers! Look closely the large blue butterfly is our Springtime Vintage Fabric yep that's right our fabric. I applied our adhesive to the back side of it and just ironed it right on to my card stock. Talk about all the different ways that you can use our fabric so if you loved this DSP as much as I did and was sad to see it go I hope that you will give this try it so simple and gives your card that much more texture. Thanks Karen for the great idea. Stay tuned for another card using our fabric. I have to run now as I need to get ready for my class. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

Perfect Adventures

Don't you just love this scooter. I have to say that this stamp set was at the top of my must haves when I first saw the mini! That adorable scooter sold me right from the start not to mention its a great water coloring set. I think this stamp set will definitely kick me into gear to practice my water coloring technique. Love, love, love this set. This card layout was inspired by a Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge which are wonderful they are great for new layouts especially if you want to change things up a bit or if as I call it have no creative mojo for the moment! As much as I hate to admit it I do get those moments every now and then, Don't you? Thanks for stopping by and drop me a line I would love to hear from you!

Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mother's Day to all of you mom's out there, I hope that you have a wonderful day being pampered and spending time with your families. Here is the Mothers Day card that I made, I had seen this card sometime ago in a Stampin' Success magazine that Stampin Up! demonstrators get monthly I really liked the different use of the embossing folder with the added touch of the textured card stock. I sponged the reverse side of the embossing image which allowed the image to pop. You can see another view by scrolling down. Gotta run I'm off to go enjoy my Mothers day. Enjoy your day and have a great rest of your weekend!

WELCOME Baby Frankie

Good Morning, I'm super excited to announce that my good friend Jen W. had her precious little baby girl Frankie yesterday. She is absolutely beautiful and we can't wait to meet her! Momma and Baby are both doing well and are healthy. =D

Which brings me to my post, I altered these onesie's for Baby Frankie. I'm really happy with the way they came out considering this was my first sew project. I have to say though my mom helped me out a lot. Thanks MOM! I made 3 different ones using our Springtime Fabric I just love this fabric design and was sad to see the coordinating DSP go but at least we still have the fabric to play with, right. I also used our Fabric adhesive to keep my image in place and then sewed them to the onesie, I don't know that I had to do that, being that they were ironed on but I was a bit nervous that they would fall apart so that's the reason I decided to sew them too! Drop me a line and let me know what you think. Scroll down to see each onesie individually. Supplies: Butterfly Die and retired button from the latest SAB aka sale-a-bration catalog

Supplies: Hearts & Brackets Die and the Regals Buttons

Supplies: Fun Flowers Die & Regals Buttons

This one turned out a little different than I had invisioned but I think it turned out pretty cute nevertheless!

Guest Stamper: Jen W

Today's guest stamper is my down line and good friend Jen. She hand delivered me this card, it's a thank you from her baby shower. Her inspiration/case came from Mary Fish. Jen and I both love her work and find that we tend to pull great ideas from everything that she does or just plain case what she does. You can find Mary Fish's inspirational thank you card here. She made some minor changes either way this card is bright and cheery and turned out great. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day it looks like the weather will be nice today!

LOL =D I'd seen a lot of these altered cards around using the Simply Sent Medallion Kit and thought what a great idea to change it up a bit and make it a little more personal.

Bev my Upline

Bev my up line made this for our imprints meeting swap. I loved this hanging top note it's so pretty. She also used my favorite die that I'm obsessed with the Fun Flowers Die if you don't have this die just let me say it's definitely a gotta have! The DSP she used is a sneak peek from the upcoming IB&C that will be released in July. It's very pretty I was kicking myself that I didn't get it, so guess what now it's on it's way to me. Yay! This paper can be earned FREE when hosting a $350+ workshop or if you spend $20 {before t&s} for this month only. I love the look of the silver glass glitter and as I type this I'm asking myself and why don't I have glass glitter? I want it now and gotta have it thanks Bev! I've gotta run thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Springtime Swap

Happy Wednesday we are almost half way through with our week! Today's post is a card that I made for my Imprints swap and my 6Th swap group. This last Saturday I had a Imprints meeting that my up line Bev puts together she gets all of us demo's together and gives us highlights, new techniques and we all do a swap and share something new, this round there were 23 of us! WOW, that is a lot of SU! girls in one room and all you here is "oh that's so cute" and a ton of laughter, especially at my table it seemed like we were sorta of the loud ones. What can I say we were just having so much fun and laughing is good for the soul rite? Some of us were also surprised by a award that Bev handed out it was the DIVA award and I was shocked and excited to hear I was one of those lucky girls, I felt like I won the lottery... whoo hoo!!! Thanks Bev!!! If you want to join my Stampin' UP team and join a awesome group of fun and talented ladies then send me a email and let's chat I hope to hear from you =D. OK, back to my post this is a 4x4 card. The theme was blooming so I thought why not use my springtime DSP, I love it, the colors and the prints those are some of my favorite colors all wrapped up for me in this awesome designer paper.

Continued Shower Prizes

Happy Hump Day! Be sure to scroll down this is the second post of the day more prizes are continued further down. This was a quick and simple gift to make. I love making these altered note pads. I used the Sweet Stitches DSP and the Island Floral Die.
Here is a closer view of the flower. I didn't take a pic of the back side but I did add a magnet strip to the back side of it.

Shower Prizes

Here is a altered compostion book using Ice Cream Parlor DSP that I did for one of the shower gifts. I also added a flower bookmark. Im sure all of you have been seeing these flower book marks all over cyber space. I had been wanting to make one so I thought this would be the perfect time to do so.
This is a hanging magnet board. I originally saw this idea at a imprints meeting that I had at my uplines house. Mercedes Weber had brought a hanging chalkboard which was abolutely adorable. Thank you for the inspiration Mercedes. I decided to make some magnets to go with my board so I cut off the tabs to our fabric brads { these can be found in the occasions mini} and just added some of our maget material to the back and voila. Note: the DSp used for this project is the Sweet Stitiches from the Occassions Mini
Here is a closer picture of those magnets. Let me know what you think. Thank you for stopping by.
